Southern Mystic Sock Yarn Giveaway!



I'm excited to be hosting another sock yarn giveaway this week! Julie from Southern Mystic has a whole zodiac collection in her shop right now, which I find very interesting and fun. I think we all tend to look at our horoscopes this time of year, pondering what the next 12 months will bring for us. For me, more fibery fun, that's for sure- and I hope you all as well!

I like to think of Julie as a renaissance woman. She is a gifted storyteller, fiber artist and now shepherdess!! We'll be watching out for home grown fleece in the coming year!

For this last giveaway of the week, please visit SouthernMystic today, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. We would love for you to both, leave an identifying mark for receipt of item and for you to send out a social networking ping about this and SouthernMystic. We'll count it as an extra entry!

The scorpio colorway is amazing.

Being a scorpio, I should say scorpio but I was really liking her Smoke and Embers handspun.

Zodiac Yarn, Sagittarius, turns me on, even though I'm not a Sagittarius.

Kim R said...

I love the In Between Times roving. But the Taurus roving is tempting as well.

DakotaRose said...

Zodiac Yarn, Sagittarius, is a beautiful yarn. I was hoping to find a Virgo, but I guess it was all gone. Beautiful stuff there.

Celestya22 said...

I LOVE the idea of adopting a Shetland!! Doileag looks like such a sweet Ewe. What a great way for those of us who don't have the room for our own flock to take part in farm life. :)

I just say a slipper sock pattern that would be great with the Aries yarn. hhhmmmm, temptation!

Like the Greenman Tussa Silk! Gorgeous!

I am a cancer but the Aries SW Merino would make some beautiful socks! That and the 'adopt a shetland' - what a great idea!

I'm loving the Virgo and Capriorn colorways but that Leatherskin is quite striking too!

bitten78 said...

my gosh! I am in love with the Pisces colorway! it isn't the usual blue or purple we get for our sign, it's a beautiful mix that looks like it was lifted straight out of a koy pond. what a perfect birthday present. the Aries colorway is a close second, it is the perfect representation of my hubby!

Oh, this makes me wish I were a Sagittarius. Or a Taurus or possibly a Leo. Or a Green Man. Gorgeous stuff.

I am, alas, none of the above. But I wouldn't mind working with them. :-)

barbara143 on Rav said...

i love the idea of adopting a sheep and getting the wool.

Zodiac Fiber Leo so warm

Love the rich greens in the Zodiac Yarn, Virgo.

dragonxser said...

While I do love the Gemini colorway, it is the smoke and embers handspun that has stolen my heart! WOW!

Kat said...

I love, love, love the idea of adopting your sheep. This is a terrific way for someone to "own", but, not have to keep it close. Your fibers and yarns are beautiful. My favorite is the Virgo roving.

patsy said...

I have to say the Aries colorway because I love red and I am an Aries patsycoats@bellsouth.net

Envirogirl said...

I like Pisces yarn!

Teresa said...

The handspun yarn is fabulous and I love the zodiac colorways but what I really want is to adopt a shetland . . .

Galia Lael said...

The Baby Angora Rabbit and Merino Lambswool Batts are something I would totally want!
